Customer Reviews

works with ios devices (iphone and ipad) the best, US co.

After trying several note app this is really is the best note app for very major reason. I had to give up evernote $70 price tag for the features needed was too steep. I do not mind paying for a software and yearly up keep but not that much. Also this app keeps notes secure, works with ipad and iphone flawlessly, the best part is and uses icloud as a storage and sync which I already pay. Being able to record and take notes at the same time is very valuable (other apps only one at a time). Also incorporating photo into your notes, in such easy way, unparalleled. One last thing it is located in California, and you can find info about the founders, employees, financials. Some other company with huge numbers of reviews, had to dig hard to find out located in China without any info about the company and financials, not a good sign. I think notability got the apple editors pick for years after years for solid reason. Definitely five stars.

Solid app for going paperless at school

I am a student and this my primary app for note taking during lectures as well as completing any hand written assignments. This app is primarily a pencil app with the ability to type if you want to. The other office apps are still designed around the keyboard with a few pencil features added in. The only feature this app is missing (hence the four stars), is the ability to make your hand writing searchable. OneNote does this, but I vastly prefer the user interface of Noteable. If you are looking to go paperless at school, this is a solid go to app.

- update: After using for a all of my class work for a quarter, there is one annoying issue. Each note has to have a name that is unique across all of the subjects and dividers. For example if you file your notes by class, you can't have a note for "Chapter 4 Notes" in two different classes. You have to preface the name in some way to make it unique.

Love this app but some suggestions

I absolutely love this app. I am in grad school and it has made keeping track of my notes and keeping up with taking notes during class so much easier. The only thing i wish i could change is the way you organize notes. I wish i was able to organize them how i wanted and by what made sense to me and not only in the three ways available. This would be nice because sometimes i download notes for class and we do not go through them in the order i download them but if i go back through the notes and make any changes it reorganizes them instead of keeping them where i want them.I also would like it if you could edit the recordings by cuting pieces out and not by whatever groupings the app gives you (usually 20 minute segments). It would also be nice if you could combine multiple notes into one after they have already been downloaded.
